I had no customers
last weekend so decided to take my father and father-in-law fishing. A little pay back for the many times
my father took me fishing when I was young. We left the marina around 4:00 in the afternoon, the plan was
to do some deep dropping until sunset and then hit the reef for Mangrove Snapper.
got to the deep drop spot and the current was ripping it took 8 pounds of weight and some careful maneuvering to find bottom.
Our first drift we picked up one very nice yellow eye snapper of 19” and a very large porgy. Second
drift, we hook up good I had never seen my Daiwa Saltiga rod bend so much. This drift yielded 2 yellow
eyes the biggest 22”, a 7-pound porgy and an Almaco Jack that weigh in at 10 pounds. We did 2 more
drift, which yielded 5 more yellow eyes 1 porgy and another Almaco Jack. By this time the sun was setting
so we headed into the reef.
Summer is here and it gets too hot to fish during the day. An evening Snapper fishing trip is a
great way to put some good eating fish on the dinner table without getting overheated and breaking the bank. Give
me a call to inquire about our evening yellow tail and mangrove snapper trips.
